    Denny, you seem to be struggling with British humour recently. Took me nearly 40 years but I think I'm getting there Wink

    I suspect Denny might be confusing 2 different meanings of the word "beaver" Wink

    Methinks the term 'beaver' used as a slang for a ladies garden was an Americanism, coined by the great Jack Nicholson in 'One flew over the Cuckoo's nest'

    Hardly.

    Apparently the earliest written evidence is from 1927 and there are unsubstantiated claims it's as a result of the material used to manufacture 'merkins' in the 17th Century. [Go look that term up].

    As an aside, the Americans here should now be able to work out why the Brits crack up every time a President of the USA [and especially Reagan] said/says: 'My fellow 'mericans.

    Grin

    Also from the Online Etymylogical Dictionary:

    O.E. beofor, befer (earlier bebr), from P.Gmc. *bebruz (cf. O.S. bibar, O.N. bjorr, M.Du., Du. bever, Low Ger. bever, O.H.G. bibar, Ger. Biber), from PIE *bhebhrus, reduplication of base *bher- (3) "brown, bright" (cf. Lith. bebrus, Czech bobr, Welsh befer; see bear (n.) for the likely reason for this). Gynecological sense ("female genitals, especially with a display of pubic hair") is 1927 British slang, transferred from earlier meaning "a bearded man" (1910), from the appearance of split beaver pelts. beauté du diable (lit. "devil's beauty") is used as a French phrase in English from 1825.

    The best Canadian joke I've heard was told by a Yank staying at the same B&B as us last summer.

    Apparently they were having trouble deciding what to call their new country so they decided to try pulling letters out of a bag at random to see what they got;

    "It's a C, eh"
    "Now an N, eh"
    "and a D, eh"

    "That'll do"
